8th Annual Sinatra Birthday Bash
A production of Jazz Arts Project, the Sinatra Birthday Bash takes place each year at the Historic Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank NJ.
Under the musical direction of Joe Muccioli, who Jazzwise Magazine says works with “a maximum of authenticity,”
Since the show’s debut, hundreds of singers have submitted their resumes and samples of their vocal work to the Count Basie Theatre for consideration. One year even an Army Major (Rory Aylward) emailed his audition materials all the way from Afghanistan where he was stationed at the time. Following an evaluation process, winners are selected to participate in this special performance. The cast represents a wide range of experience and styles from young singers just starting out through amateur, semi-pro and professional performers of all ages.
This show is a perennial favorite that fills the house with die hard Sinatra fans who appreciate authentic, top notch live entertainment from a very talented cast and a world-class jazz orchestra in the true tradition of the Count Basie / Frank Sinatra collaborations of years past. This event is also a fundraiser for the organization’
Musical Director and Conductor Joe Muccioli with vocalists Lou Abbato, Ray Deforest, Jesus Cruz, Michael DiMaulo & Debbie Aminah, Trish Mata, Khadijah Mohammed, Peter Perrotta, Livia Tedesco, Vance Villastrigo.
